Reduce Your Penalty:

If you have received a Notice of Transit Violation that starts with the letter “T”, you may be able to reduce the amount of the penalty by taking Metro Transit School / Escuela de Transito.

To obtain your penalty reduction please follow these steps:

  • Watch the Metro Transit School Tutorial and complete the 3-part quiz (this should take about 20 to 30 minutes)
  • Have your Notice of Transit Violation with you so you can input the number (look in the top right corner)
  • Once you've received your Certificate of Completion an automatic $15 penalty reduction will be applied to your ticket. Please call 213.92.COURT (213.922.6878) for further instructions.

Eligibility: A person may apply his or her Certificate of Completion to reduce a Notice of Transit Violation penalty only once in a 12-month period. To be eligible for a penalty reduction the Transit School Tutorial must be completed before any second level administrative hearing is conducted.

If your violation does not begin with a “T” or if you wish to learn more about Metro’s rules and safety watch the Metro Transit School Tutorial Video/ Escuela de transito de Metro.
